Ora Banda Mining reported progress at the Riverina Underground Mine and Sand King Development Project.

Riverina Underground mine saw 1,711m of development completed in the first quarter, an 88% increase from the previous quarter.

Stoping began on the 2295 level of Main Lode in March, with a 2.2m mining width and minimal 7% dilution. Underground diamond drilling confirmed consistent high-grade ore lodes.

Sand King Development drilling program shows potential for a second underground mine. A recent extensional hole returned 7.4m @ 4.5g/t, extending mineralisation over 150m deeper than the discovery hole.
